In 2020, magnum photographer recounts a momentous year in United States history, marking the culmination of many themes in van Agtmael’s ongoing work on American power post-9/11.
Presented chronologically, the book unfolds with photos of COVID-19 in New York City and lockdown ‘rebellions’, before progresses to the Black Lives Matter movement in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the rise of dangerous militias, and culminating in the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6, with Biden’s swearing-in a few weeks later. Diary entries accompany many pictures.
